    I have a 2000 Ford Explorer XLS and need some help diagnosing my cruise control problem. The switches on the steering wheel light up, but when I click the on button the cruise control light on the dash doesn't come on. I haven't dug too deep into the module, but I'm guessing I just need to replace the switches on the steering wheel. However, I don't want to pay the money if it isn't that! Any help would be awesome, thanks.

    Welcome Josh

    The dash light should come on after your push set button - after pushing the ON button.

    I think you have to be travelling faster than 40 mph maybe before it will actually set. Try that first.

    There is a diagnostic procedure as well and I will post it here once I find it ...

    cruise control self test

    Enter self-test diagnostics by depressing the speed control OFF switch while turning the ignition key ON, making sure the engine does not start and is not running. The speed control indicator on the instrument panel
    will flash once to indicate that speed control module entered the diagnostic mode. Five additional flashes at this point indicate a defective speed control servo. Release the OFF switch.
    Press the remaining switches in this sequence: ON, RESUME, COAST and SET/ACCEL.
    If the ON switch is not depressed within five seconds after entering the diagnostics mode, the module times out and the procedure must be started over.
    The speed control indicator lamp will flash as each switch is depressed. Press each switch in the sequence immediately after the indicator light goes out for the previous switch.
    NOTE: There will be a slight delay when the last button is pressed and the lamp flashes.

    A lamp flash with the last button (SET/ACCEL) indicates that the static test passed. If the lamp does not flash with the last button and there are no additional flashes of the lamp, the switch is defective.
    If the lamp does not flash with the last button, and additional flashes occur, follow the chart below for trouble codes:
    2 flashes - BPP defective, circuit is defective, brake applied, CPP switch or jumper (if equipped).
    3 flashes - deactivator switch is open or circuit defective.
    4 flashes - vehicle speed signal is out of range or circuit is defective
    Immediately (.25 second delay) after the static test, the speed control servo does a dynamic test by automatically actuating the throttle lever from 8 mm (0.315 in) to 12 mm (0.472 in) of travel from the idle position. During the dynamic throttle pull, observe throttle movement to witness any binding or sticking of the speed control cable and correct connection of speed control cable to throttle lever. Make sure the throttle returns to the idle position.

    Most likely it's the switch on the brake master cylinder. Very common failure item.
